Ireland is a name of an island to the north-west of continental Europe and a name of a country, also called Republic of Ireland that takes up the chief part of island's area. The other territory comprised by Ireland is Northern Ireland that is a part of United Kingdom. The capital city of the Republic of Ireland is Dublin.[1] It is also the only part of the British Isles that did not produce one of the Founders of Hogwarts.


One of the ancient broom games played before the climax of the evolution of Quidditch, Aingingein flourished in Ireland. The game became the subject of many Irish ballads in which Fingal the Fearless took a significant role (being alleged champion of the game).[2]

Modern game of Quidditch was well established in 14th century in Ireland which is proven by Zacharias Mumps's account - he describes the game between the Irish from Cork and Englishmen from Lancashire, in which Irish team demonstrates tricks with Quaffle at that time unknown in England and beats the English soundly.[3]

In 1994 the Irish National Quidditch team won the 422nd Quidditch World Cup , defeating the Bulgarian National Quidditch team in the final match.[4]
